With under two weeks to go until Canadians hit the polls, the first and only English-language debate will kick off tonight at 6 p.m. and go until 8 p.m.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet and Green Party Leader Annamie Paul will all face off less than 24 hours after last night’s French-language debate.

On Wednesday, leaders debated topics including COVID-19 recovery, vaccine passports, health care, child care, and climate change.

So far, opinion polls have the Conservatives and Liberals in an unexpected two-way race. Many believe Trudeau called the election to reform a majority government.

The topics set to be debated tonight include reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, affordability, COVID-19 recovery, leadership and accountability.

So far, each party has released their platforms within the month, save the Greens, from what is the shortest election time legally allowed.

There are seven ridings on Vancouver Island, visit here to see who is running in your riding.

You can watch the English-language Leader’s debate via CBC News on television, or radio,  or on their app for iOS and Android, or cbcnews.ca to follow the debate live, with live video of the event itself.

You can also watch the debate via YouTube.
